Abstract:

The goal of this study, Incest The Victims and Their Perpetrators, was to determine the incidence of victims of incest in Nueva Ecija Home for Girls. Incest is described as a child's sexual exploitation by a parent or other entity that has control over the child. Violence can occur in various degrees of age, locations, and forms. Victims experience mental depression, not only do the results of abuse end up in the latter, but it also has a psychological effect on both victims and families. Incest is characterized as a child's sexual exploitation by a parent or other entity with authority over the child. Stories of violence and sexual assault are frequently seen on television, but few are concerned and aware of the potential support they can give to victims, so victims cannot speak out on their own because they know it and see it as a very humiliating and tragic event. Careful consideration was given to the profile of both victims and perpetrators in terms of demographic, economic and educational variables. During therapy sessions involving counseling, evaluation and in-depth examination of the case of molested individuals at the Palayan City Girls Home, Nueva Ecija, the researchers would like to examine the impacts of abuse. The researchers would also like to know the causes of this exploitative activity to determine the level of awareness of the community with regards to the abused, especially in women of young age who do not have enough wisdom to defend themselves. Concern of this research focused also on the status of social and psychological support. The researchers used interview and observation method of gathering information for the cases.The findings of this study shows that sexual exploitation is common and victims belong to low class families. The abused are psychologically disturbed and its impact last for many years. The study revealed that there were also NGOs and GOs which were ready to help and support the victims. Perpetrators of incest were seldom jailed. The justice system is to slow to respond to the cases of sexual violence. The children with stepfathers and working mom had greater possibilities of having abused children. Incest cuts across all ethnic religious groups in our society. Incest also shows that children in the Philippines were obedient to parents and were willing to sacrifice themselves than to voice out their secrets. Victims have feelings of isolation and mistrust.
